Photos by Toni Siebert and David Karp, CVC, 5/22/2008. Photo rights. C-35 left, Carrizo right, 25 year old trees.
Source: Received as budwood from Willits & Newcomb, Thermal, Ca, 1965.
Parentage/origins: Reported to be a limb sport of Marsh discovered in Corona, Ca.
Rootstocks of accession: Carrizo citrange, C-35 citrange
Season of ripeness at Riverside: February to June
Notes and observations:
7/1987, EMN: At Lindcove it has been virtually identical to Redblush.
3/18/1988, EMN: Flesh seems a little darker pink than Redblush this season; which is why it was named and promoted, right? I always thought the darker pink attributed to Shambar was nothing more than a hope-ticle illusion; but maybe it is true.
6/10/2009, DK & TS: Attractive salmon-colored flesh, medium to low seeds; typical pigmented grapefruit flavor.
Description from The Citrus Industry Vol. 1 (1967):
"Shambar is a seedless, pink-fleshed fruit that resembles Redblush (Ruby) and has been reported to mature slightly earlier than Marsh or Redblush and to exhibit somewhat better color and flavor than the latter.
